A friend of mine has a helper who doesn't want off day (to go out) too, but just wants Facebook. My friend and hubby was more than happy to oblige. Her hubby even bought the helper a cheap phone with wifi and let the helper do just that on her day off. Good at cleaning and giving basic care for the kids but still working on the cooking bit. 4th month now.
Not all employers are comfortable with helper having a mobile phone plus Facebook time, but so far quite a handful of frenz or relatives with helpers that I personally know don't mind this arrangement.
Would like to hear your thoughts.
No weekly off. Only Facebook time.
My Filipino maid have 1 off day a month. She has a facebook account, and usually access it via her HP at night after we retire to our bedrooms. I will retire to my bedroom at 8PM, she will go to her own bedroom too. I do not allow her to close the door when she sleeps. Sometimes, I passby her bedroom past midnight, she is still using her HP. I accessed her FB and found that she have posting at different timings throughout the day. So that would mean that whenever she is out of my sight, or if she is in the bathroom, she uses her HP. Now she even block me from her FB. It's not a wise thing to allow your maid to use Facebook, they will abuse it.
